Biography

Connie Fisher (born 17 June 1983, Lisburn, Northern Ireland) is a British actress and singer who won the BBC Talent Show How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria? in 2006. She starred as Maria Von-Trapp in the West End revival of The Sound of Music from November 2006 to February 2008. She resumed the role of Maria in The Sound of Music UK tour starting in July 2009.

Connie has released two albums, Favourite Things in 2006 and Secret Love in 2009. Both feature songs from popular musicals.

Fisher was born in Lisburn, Northern Ireland, and is daughter of a British Army Royal Corps of Signals major. Fisher lived in Dorset, England until the age of six, when she moved to a village near Haverfordwest in Pembrokeshire, Wales. She is a fluent Welsh speaker.

During her teenage years she was a member of Haverfordwest Operatic Society where she performed in The Pirates of Penzance and played Nellie Forbush in South Pacific. She was also a member of The Torch Youth Theatre where she performed in George Buchner’s play Woyzek. She successfully became a member of National Youth Music Theatre (1999–2002), where she played Lady of the Lake in the UK Tour of Pendragon, and played the lead role, Morgan Le Fay, when the production toured Japan in 2001. From an early age Fisher was a member of Côr Newyddion Da (English translation - “Good News Choir”), which introduced her to the Eisteddfodic field and encouraged her to perform as a soloist.
